I love the fresh air of very early spring, when snow is still on the ground, but sun glows between branches of the white trunks of birch trees. Play of sunlight on the trees and brunches in the forest. It creates almost an abstract impression. Hot reds and cool blue create a lively contrast in this artwork. I hope to provoke a happy, joyful mood of coming spring.

Getting to Know Julia

Julia works from a studio in her home that overlooks a wooded ravine and finds inspiration in the natural order of the universe. Her art draws from many sources of imagery, but consistently possesses a magical and ethereal quality. Whether the image depicts stylized snowfall, glistening flora, or a collaged figure, the work exudes a fleeting element of beauty that transcends reality. Julia primarily creates using painting or illustrated collage. When she paints, she foregoes sketching beforehand, instead allows emotion and intuition to drive the composition. Her collages are influenced by illustration techniques acquired from her Master’s degree in fashion design. Julia likes being able to switch between the two artistic methods, often working simultaneously on multiple projects to keep her creative inspiration fresh and constantly evolving.
